Blogging about not blogging

15 04 2011

I’ve been blogging kind of sporadically lately. Have you noticed? I’d like to think you’ve noticed, “you” being the collective audience of probably about two people who actually read this thing, but that might be pretentious. I mean, I’ve noticed, but I’m the one blogging. Or not blogging.

Anyway, I promise there’s a reason — namely the fact that my thesis has been eating my soul. Thankfully, I’m almost at a good stopping point for the semester. Sadly, the semester is almost over anyway, so by stopping point I really mean that the semester will be over and I won’t have any other choice.

That being said, I may have to put off eating weird food for a couple of weeks (at least intentionally), or at least do it on a week-by-week basis. I’m sorry; I really am. You’re all (both?) wonderful; you really are. It’s not you; it’s me.

(I only said all that so I could use semicolons, actually.)

I’ll be back soon with something delightfully disgusting. I promise.

Yet another note

I am such a slacker.

Except I’m really not, because I’ve been busy with finals and figuring out an internship … but I know, I know, those are excuses. And what’s more, they’re kind of lame.

So, yeah, maybe I’m a slacker.

My blog last week was late by a good three days, and it’s already Monday this week and I have yet to post. I bought the item I’m going to review earlier today, though. And I had every intention to blog tonight, but a meeting ran late and I still have internship paperwork to fill out and fax in.

(Excuses, I know.)

Anyway, what I’m getting at is that I’m 99 percent sure I’ll have a chance to blog tomorrow. I can’t promise anything, but I’ll do my absolute best. I’m leaving for vacation on Thursday, so I’ll definitely post before then. (Speaking of vacation, that post might come a bit late, too, depending on how my schedule ends up turning out. But hopefully I’ll be able to tell the tale of some weird food from Oklahoma.)

After I get home from vacation, it’s back to the grindstone — and no more slacking for me.

Just a quick note…

31 10 2010

I try my hardest not to make excuses, but the fact is, I just got home from a weekend trip and have mounds of work to sift through before tomorrow. (Plus, tonight is Halloween — not that I would neglect blogging in order to go out, but…well, I’m neglecting blogging so I can go out. A little bit.)

All this is to say that, while I normally post every Sunday, I won’t be sharing any strange food adventures today. That’s not to say I won’t have any strange food adventures, considering that I’ll be sifting through the candy my little sister brings home late tonight (and there’s no telling what Neighbor Joe will put in there this year). But that’s not the point.

The point is that I’m going to make up for this. Sometime this week (probably Tuesday but I can’t promise anything), I’ll find something extra strange (and most likely really nasty — like squid eyes or frog eggs or something) to eat, and I’ll tell you all about it.  Until then, Happy Halloween!
